I don't see usb devices in my Ubuntu running in VMWare. I read some posts about, unfortunately it didn't solve my problem.
The main problem is that when i'm running:
sudo /etc/init.d/mountdevsubfs.sh start
i got message:
Filesystem type 'usbfs' is not supported. Skipping mount.
ln: creating symbolic link `/dev/bus/usb/devices' to `.usbfs/devices': File exists
mount: mount point /proc/bus/usb does not exist
I have already uncomment lines:
mkdir -p /dev/bus/usb/.usbfs
domount usbfs "" /dev/bus/usb/.usbfs -obusmode=0700,devmode=0600,listmode=0644
ln -s .usbfs/devices /dev/bus/usb/devices
mount --rbind /dev/bus/usb /proc/bus/usb
I have VMWare tools installed
